Verdict

LIME DROP had plenty to spare at Leicester a week ago, so he's an obvious choice to defy the penalty up against more exposed types. Folly Gate arrives in form and has Paddy Brennan taking over for the first time, so he's feared most, with Midnight Callisto hard to rule out having returned to form last time.

  1. LIME DROP (FR)

  3. MIDNIGHT CALLISTO
